Masako Murakami's Photo Story

The first photo was taken in Tule Lake (1945). The four of us were friends who lived in block 22. I was 11 years old. After camp, one went to Seabrook, NJ, one to Central California, another to Los Angeles, and I to San Francisco.

We have maintained contact over the years and met in Los Angeles in 1985 as a group and again in Bakersfield in 2007.

In camp we saw each other every day, went to the library, and attended half-day Japanese school. We also rode bikes and ice skated together, but shared one bike and a pair of ice skates.
